We have a fairly small pool so it doesn't take too much to clean it however using the standard pole and this sort of vacuum head isn't cutting it anymore. http://cdn.lesliespool.com/wimages/p...09.jpg?300x300 My teenagers swimming around the bottom with the hose seems to be the best way to clean any sand and debris.
I'd like to purchase an automatic suction type vacuum that I can let do it's thing without babysitting but not anything too expensive either. I can plug into my skimmer fairly easily, I believe.
I was reading about a Kreepy Krauly (model 42) but I'm not sure how that will work on my stairs where the water returns are and the water depth is shallow as it seems to be a "tall" sort of design. Thoughts?
I've also read about "the pool cleaner" vacuum(more expensive) but it sounds like it could have trouble running on the fiberglass. I see they sell another set of tires but at an additional cost so then the vacuum becomes unreasonable.
I'm not set on either of those vacuums or brands, just really would love to hear what works for others on fiberglass and seem to be spinning my wheels.
